The airport was built between 1941 and 1943 and was a bomber training airfield during World War II. In 1949 the US government gave the airport to Cochise County.

In the year ending March 31, 2009 the airport had 19,650 aircraft operations, average 53 per day: 71% general aviation and 29% military. 19 aircraft were then based at the airport: 95% single-engine and 5% multi-engine.[1]
